The Cordillera Equestrian Center

The Cordillera Equestrian Center is the largest such facility in the Vail Valley, boarding up to 48 horses.

Outdoor Amenities

In the heart of Cordillera sits a spectacular equestrian center that includes three indoor/outdoor riding arenas, boarding stalls with daily turn outs as well as outdoor living paddocks and training facilities.
